1. Friend; commonly used in greetings.

What’s up bro?
I vouch for Todd, we’ve been bros since way back.

2. An alpha male idiot. This is the derogatory sense of the word (common usage in the western US): white, 16-25 years old, inarticulate, belligerent, talks about nothing but chicks and beer, drives a jacked up truck that’s plastered with stickers, has rich dad that owns a dealership or construction business and constantly tells this to chicks at parties, is into extreme sports that might be fun to do but are uncool to claim (wakeboarding, dirt biking, lacrosse), identifies excessively with brand names, spends a female amount of money on clothes and obsesses over his appearance to a degree that is not socially acceptable for a heterosexual male. The female equivalent of the Bro is the Bro Hoe. Bro Hoes are Bro groupies that hang around bros, many of whom are actually quite hot and are thus spared the scorn that is heaped on Bros.
My sisters new boyfriend is an idiot; the dude is a total bro.

A Bro; Socal Trash; Broseph, Dude-Bro, Bro

This species of usually white sometimes hispanic male can be found in consentrated herds in southern california. Areas in the "valley", Anywhere inbetween Barstow, Victorville, Apple Valley, San Dimas Covina/West Covina, Anahiem, San Bernadino, Fontana...etc

A dead giveaway that you have spotted a bro if you can smell the AXE body spray from the lifted Dodge/Ford next to you. They often refer to women as "Ho's" "B*tches" "cunts" "dick practice". Bro's also pride themselves in their "im such a dick!" attitude. It's kind of a way of setting themselvs apart from the rest of us who might actually have some respect for traffic laws, women, and the general public. Thats right, it's kind of hard to hold a conversation when the BRO next to you is blaring that annoying I hate everything especially my parents and my ex girlfriend music, or whatever music that makes them feel like such a "badass" and sound from his truck is shaking your car.

Bro's wear wonderfully matching clothes, it actually looks like their little sister wanted to play dress-up but whatever. Flat-Bill Caps, Wife-Beaters, those retarded looking skaters shoes that make it look like your feet are like 4 inches long, high black socks, Dickies pants or shorts, never less than 4 peircings, usually have facial hair (goatee, beard) the fat bro's dig the beard hides the fat face and gives them a more "look at me! i'm a hardcore biker lookin guy. Ya! im such a DICK!" Tattoos. shaved head or spiked hair all the way around, Clothing companies are always a dead giveaway, Hurley, Osiris, Etnies, Skin, SOCAL, RockStar, VolCom, Element, DC, DVS, Independent, West Coast Choppers, OC Choppers...etc. These companies are always plastered in stickers all over thier Bro-mobiles. Usually on the back window.

Bro lingo: "Dude", "Bro", "Dude-Bro", "Hey Bro", "Hey Brah", "Yo Bro", "Yo Brah", "Sup Bro", "Sup Brah", "You Hangout?"(a great pick up line), "Party?", "Sh!tfaced", "T-rashed", "D-G.A.F"(dont give a ****) "D!ck" "F*ck YOU BRO!" "F*ck OFF!", "Badass!", "SIIICK","Gnarly","Tight!"Fer-Sure Bro", "That sh!t was hella tight bro", "Pussy!"

How to protect yourself:
What I always do,
When one is spotted, be sure to alert your friends that your with. Yell at one friend "Dude!" and the other one confirms with a "Bro!" keep that going for about 30 seconds, it takes them awhile to catch on.

Bro's are hilarious. The Socal toughguy that will give you the finger(which he practices in the mirror before bed and when he is about to go out and cruise). Drives a big lifted truck with straight-piped exahust for that extra touch that lets you know he's coming and he's a dick. Cut's you off in traffic and gives you a long glance through his $20 sunglasses he purchased from Saleem at the 7-11. Revs his engine so your baby will start crying in the back seat. He laughs. Turns up his angry music, to let you know he had a bad day at school and he's pissed. as he is leaving the light he will probably take a chug of his Rockstar or his Monster Energy Drink, lick his toungue out between his two fingers and show you his toungue ring, letting you know he is a Dick, sexually expirenced and a badass, therefore you want him, or want to be like him. Bro 1: "Ya bro, he/she wants me" Bro 2: "Fer-sure brah". It doesnt matter if it's a guy, if he turns him on, thats bro points for him. Gay is kind of a flexible word these days.

Bro's usually never work, or if they do it's some pawn-ass job at a skate board shop, or changing oil at a Jiffy Lube. They always appear rich, but really, their clothes, trucks, and colonge are all purchased on a credit card that their parents gave them.

For some strange reason bro's have a strong female following. Probably because they "seem" dangerous and HOT!!!11one OMG sO HaWt!!!11one. But really, the whole adventureous badass sickass attitude is really just them being retarded, acting like 7 year olds on crank to hopefully earn the attention of a select "Hottie" or a "Big Bro" (a bro that they hang around with that is like the Main Bro, they all one day want to be as badass as this guy)He did 1 year at Citrus Community College.... Real men are Wild, dangerous, adventureous and fun guys.

Bro's, are posers, assholes and nut-sacks whose balls never dropped. They seem like everything out the outside, money, freedom, fun, but it's all a big shell. None of them actually know how to man up to a real situation or how to enjoy the presence of a decent young woman. "Hey, nice ass...b!tch" really doesnt cut it. Having fun to a Bro is getting wasted, and the rest he really doesnt matter. Mabey racing side-by-side down Glendora Mountain and trying to jump from another truck to another. Or getting drunk and trying to get cops attention by pulling up next to them and throwing beer cans at them trying to race all while giving them the finger and screaming D-G.A.F BRO!

So my point is, it's not the clothing that makes a bro, it's the fake attitude, of this hardcore hardass who wears only black and white and acts like he is invincible. See, bro's wear skater clothes, how many of them actually skate? You arent a bro for wearing hurley or Dc Shoe.
"Look at those trucks in that parking lot and all the people out next to them, Thats what we like to call a brodeo, it's when they meet a location or "local" if your too bro to speak normal english. And they take their underage girlfriends and drive around from their location for about an hour and then drive back up to the hills to have a party which ends up in some type of guy-guy, girl-girl, guy-guy-girl sex. just a brodeo, happens all the time."

"Wow that guy is Bro'd out"
"If their an AXE factory in this mall?, nah, it was just that dude-bro that walked by"
"Look at that bro who parked his brodozer parked sideways in that parking lot taking up 4 spaces"
"F*cks up bro, tryin' to get faded?"
"We got so T-rashed last night in the desert, ya me to brah, I got head like 6 times and once when I was chugging a bottle of Vodka, god im so f*ucking cool!"

Bros are a type of white male between the ages of 16-24. They originated in Southern California during the early 2000s, but are now prevalent in most major cities throughout the US and Canada. They are characterized mainly by their frequent use of the word "bro" to describe other males who are actually unrelated to them, but can be noted by many other distinguishing features such as:

1. A brightly colored Abercrombie and Fitch polo (often pink) worn with the collar popped
2. A Livestrong bracelet
3. A trucker hat, worn either backwards or tilted to the side
4. A pair of gino sunglasses, most likely purchased from Armani Exchange for $39.99, and often worn indoors / in non-sunny weather
5. Being overly tanned, to the point at which it is apparent they spend several days a week at the tanning salon
6. Hair with too much gel in it
7. Working out all the time and wearing overly tight shirts to make it look like they are more jacked than they actually are
8. Frequent use of the words "chill" and "sweet"
9. Liking Family Guy better than the Simpsons
10. Listening to a combination of soft rock (Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Dave Matthews), the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and some rap.
11. Ripped jeans for formal attire and track pants for informal attire
12. The excessive use of cologne and axe body spray

There are several "bro repellants" available to the common North American young man:

1. Listening to thrash metal, grunge metal, or classic rock
2. Using words longer than six letters
3. Staying away from Laguna Beach, Malibu, or any other towns with names that are printed on Hollister shirts
Bro #1: Yo bro, let's go chill at Laguna beach bro, but first we have to work on our tans bro, I hear Lauren Conrad is gonna be there bro.

Bro #2: Sweet bro, sounds chillin' bro, let's do it up bro.

1. Male friends who are close enough to talk about their feelings, without feeling gay.

2. Men who act like there are no women around, even when there are. They often wear polo shirts and curse loudly, along with excessive use of the word "bro". These types of guys originated the term, "bro".
Bitchy Girlfriend: "Where are you? When are you coming home? You're at the bar, aren't you!?!?!?"

Dude: "I'm out with the bros babe. Call you back." *hangs up* "So wassup guys are we gonna go to the bar or what?"

NOT THE DEFINITION FOR DOUCHEBAGS.
Your bro is your homie(s) for life. Calling someone your bro declares automatically that you are down for life, that your bros come directly in front of thy hoes. Choose carefully who you declare as your bro, because some people could intercept this very wrongly and it could backfire. You could call strangers you interact with "man" and/or "dude" but "bro" is sacred.

An upper class white male who is usually in college or is stuck in the “frat boy phase”. A bro parties hard and sometimes even works hard. Bros prefer light beer and are sometimes considered self-centered. A bro will usually go to prep school and then a private college. Bros do not go to public high schools. Most bros consider themselves classy. They usually drive foreign luxury cars with the exception being jeeps. Bros have their own style which usually consists of boat shoes or sandals, a collared shirt with the collar often popped, sunglasses, and a backwards hat. The three most common sports played by bros are lacrosse, rugby and crew. Most bros worship the work of artists such as Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and Counting Crows.
Hey Bro lets drink some light beers and cockblock other bros at the bar.

A caucasian male, typically ages 15 - 24.

A Bro prefers Birkenstock sandals, polo or rubgy shirts (typically with the collar popped), and baseball caps with a pre-frayed brim for their usual attire. Bros are attracted by shops such as Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Abercromie, and other similar outfitters.

Musical tastes typical for a Bro include Dave Matthews Band, Oasis, Jack Johnson, John Mayer, and Travis. Bros will also, on occasion, listen to the latest rap, and on even more rare occasions, punk rock.

Bros will incessantly use "Chill," "Bro," and "Sweet" in their conversations. "Cheah" seems to be a mispronunciation of "Yeah," typical of bro culture. "Mad" is typically used to emphasize adjectives of certain things - this is often used in conjunction with "Chill."

At parties, bros tend to cluster together. They always travel in packs, constantly referring to their fellow-bros as their wingman. They enjoy drinking copius quantities of beer and rating women based on their physical attributes.

If Dave Matthews Band comes to your city, expect bros to be out in large numbers. Proper bro repellent includes emo behavior, excessively loud grunge metal, a shortage of beer, and to constantly be in a state of high stress.

See Bro Rape for more information; however, this definition is 100% accurate as I am a kid who trys to fit in as a bro.
